    Architectural Design and Drafting
    Program Introduction
     
    The Architectural Drafting and Design program provides students the opportunity to explore the world of architecture and engineering. Students will develop skills and proficiencies needed for employment and or post education in Architectural, Engineering, Landscape Architecture or Architectural Engineering fields such as structural, civil, electrical, mechanical and construction management. Lab oriented projects, construction site field trips and professional guest speakers occur throughout the school year. Competitive extracurricular activities with the Technology Student Association (TSA) and Architectural Club allow students to further explore architecture and engineering. 
     
    Students will start out with learning the basic drafting tools used by todays private architectural and engineering firms. Students will then apply those basic skills to design, draft and build a model of a home. Advanced classes will educate students on the structural, electrical and mechanical components of a home and preparing cost estimates. The final class is to help students prepare for college and the work force. Project presentations, speeches, professional looking portfolios and interviewing skills are part of this course. 
     
    Many of the program's students have pursued post enduation degrees from acreddited colleges of architecture, engineering, architectural engineering and landscape architecture.
